Ike Davis unlikely to play again this season

Ike Davis left Saturday’s game with a strained oblique muscle and manager Terry Collins said this morning that the Mets expect the first baseman to miss the remainder of the season.

That’s a very tough break for Davis, who was turning things in around in a huge way following an absolutely brutal start to the season that got him demoted to the minors. Since returning from Triple-A in early July he’s hit .267 with an .872 OPS in 48 games, posting a fantastic .438 on-base percentage with more walks (38) than strikeouts (35).

Davis is making $3.15 million this season and will be due for at least that much in 2014 via arbitration, so it’ll be interesting to see if the Mets continue to stick with the 26-year-old as their first baseman.

    He’s got fairly severe career splits vs LH/RH, and wouldn’t be a terrible option for some sort of platoon. I guess the question is whether you want to pay that kind of money and use a roster spot on a platoon first baseman, or if you think you can go out and get someone who can hit both righties and lefties. Given his down year, I’d imagine he probably shouldn’t get much of a raise in arbitration at any rate.

      The team isn’t going to contend for anything anyway next year barring some significant changes. It’ll be another year to give the prospects time to get MLB experience in. I don’t think there’s anyone that Davis is blocking in the organization and has shown stretches (a whole season a few years ago and the second half of the last two seasons) where he can be a 800-900 OPS guy. Why not give him a shot at 1B next year and see what happens?
